I have the larger 16 L bag and it works great, and I use it almost everyday. It is great for carrying skis and any other gear. One of my favorite things about this pack is that it is insulated so that your water won't freeze, it is also great in the summer for keeping drinks cold. Overall it is a great low profile pack.
I wanted a snowboard/ ski pack that is not large. I mainly wanted a pack that can hold some hydration fluids and gopro gear. This pack is sleek enough that it doesn't get in the way or be so large that it alters your riding posture. I also love the graphics too and you can tell from the materials that this is a quality pack from Osprey. In short if you are mainly a rider that needs hydration because you ride in a huge resort or might venture to the side country it also has straps to do so if you need to hike it with your board off. This pack is the right size for you!
I just skied with this for 10 days. was perfect for holding essentials and a bladder. Hiked Aspen highlands bowl in strong wind and the thing was tremendous. The Karve 6 is larger than you might think. Can easily store your wallet, sunscreen, goggles, sunglasses, midlayer, gloves - all in a very compact package. Great for on piste or side country.
